I've been to alot of Chinese buffet's and this one is one of the best for the price. There is a large variety and the hibachi grill does a very nice job. The sushi is just about as fresh as it can be. There something for everyone here from authentic Asian food to roast beef and pizza.

Fortune Star is a conveniently located near the west end of Butler, near most of the shopping areas. It's a fairly large restaurant, so it is rare to have to wait to be seated. There are at least 3 steam tables with prepared hot dishes, a cold salad bar, a cold bar for desserts and a sushi bar. My favorite... More

When we want to go out for Chinese food, this is our place of choice. Its a chinese buffet that has a good balance of chinese food & american. If you go during a slow time, the pans aren't filled so they can keep the food fresher & not potentially waste as much. My favorite foods here are the teriyaki... More

Lunch time everything is fresh and delicious and the price is reasonable - for dinner - go somewhere else ... price increases too much and everything is old and dried out. Needs cleaned up a bit and renovated a little, but OK for a buffet.

There is a lot of variety on the buffet. The only complaint I have is that the wait staff are like vultures; let me enjoy my food and don't keep asking to take all my dishes away as soon as I put a fork down. Also, we're in America .. it's Pepsi, not Pessi. Go to China Gourmet on Rt... More

Big selection but almost everything is deep fried. Salad bar is iceberg and dressing only. Includes desserts and nice cream.

I like the food for the most part but sometimes it tasted off- Especially sushi. Their sushi sometimes doesn't taste very fresh. I don't really enjoy any of their desserts they seem to be frozen cakes that are flavorless. Of course the sugar covered donuts are good(anything covered in sugar is good) . They do have good fried rice and... More

I loved Fortune Star. I visited this place frequently. The food was excellent. My last & final visit ended when I found a cockroach in my rice. This made me realize that the kitchen had to be dirty & disgusting. While the dining area is always spotless, this made me wonder how clean the area was where they make all... More
